I hope you’re not sick of all the Pokemon related posts yet, haha!
To wrap up February’s celebration of 20 years of Pokemon, here’s a post dedicated to the first generation of the amazing franchise: Red, Blue, and Yellow!
I had gotten all three of the first generation of Pokemon games eons ago with the translucent purple GameBoy Color nearly twenty years ago on a very happy Easter morning. I had just recently joined the Pokemon fandom thanks to a couple of good friends way back from elementary school, and they were awestruck when I showed them my Pokemon Yellow game days later.
Since then, I’ve been hooked. I have enjoyed every new Pokemon game since the first generation, with the vast regions, new Pokemon, the music, and game play… It’s definitely a franchise that I cannot imagine dying off.
The games have only improved throughout the years (with some, uh, hiccups in my opinion around the fifth generation there) and now we’ve gotten word of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon for the next installments! Not much was shown from them aside from a few early art concepts, but it was revealed that Red, Blue, and Yellow can transfer Pokemon to Pokemon Bank to Sun and Moon. We could be playing with our first generation of favorites in the seventh generation games!
Seven generations of Pokemon games in 20 years… Can you believe it? Here’s hoping for 20 more years!
Which generation of Pokemon got you hooked? Any certain favorites?
